I'm interested in doing cryptography as a major, and ive talked to a proffesor from MIT, and a student of Professor Rivest about courses to take, they included: number theory, probability, abstract algebra, and linear algebra.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am wondering if anyone has anything to add. Also for cheap textbooks and colleges, other than MIT that have reknown cryptography courses.
